Despite the cooling winds of Monterey, the Hess Chardonnay is still a very ripe and buttery style. Obvious butterscotch and warm spice, pineapple and vanilla with orange cream and exotic citric notes. The caramel continues on the palate with a mix of sweet spice (loads of star anise and clove), vanilla, tropical fruit and citrus flavours with toasted oak on the finish. Lively acidity keeps it bright.
